A prayer for prosperity

1We call Sarasvān, under whose protection all cattle wander, to
   preserve and aid us,
  Him in whose ordinance abide the waters, to whose command
   the Lord of Plenty listens.
2Abiding here let us invoke Sarasvān, the seat of riches, glorious,
  Him who inclines and gives to him who worships, the rich pos-
   sessor and the Lord of Fulness.
